A new free digital resource to help participants capture and share John Muir Award experiences. Quotes, photos, stories, songs, sounds and videos can all be uploaded. See what others are sharing here. Contact your Award Manager if you would like to request an account, or you can download a hard copy to print yourself below.
Use this to record your experiences during your John Muir Award activity. Draw, sketch or paint. Write quotes, stories, songs, names of things, poetry, or make rough notes to remind you of what you've done. Stick things in it. This can be your personal memento of what you've done.
Each of our Resource Guides follows the same structure and has a list of useful websites for more information. Websites that are particularly helpful for school groups are highlighted.
We have a full suite of John Muir Award Publications.
